The Horace Orr Post 29 of the American Legion in Marietta presented $90,000 in donations on August 2, 2018 to three veterans charities from the proceeds of the 4th Annual Veterans Memorial 5K and Military Appreciation Ceremony that was held on May 26, 2018 on the Marietta Square. These awards were presented prior to Post 29's general meeting and included an awesome dinner to a packed house of members, sponsors, friends, and supporters. It was a great night. The three charities that were each presented with $30,000 were the Georgia National Guard Family Support Foundation, Clay National Guard Center; the Shepherd's Men - SHARE Military initiative of the Shepherd Center; and the Service Officer of the American Legion Post 29.
